THE THINKING MAN'S ENGINE KIT
An ideal project for the beginning model builder. Easy-to-assemble and runs very well. All machining has been done for you. A dry fuel platform and a test quantity of "ESBIT" dry fuel is supplied. Denatured alcohol also works well as a fuel for Stirling Cycle Engines. For those persons who prefer using denatured alcohol, we have developed a handy burner, Stock No. 90, which is available on our solar accessories page for a small additional charge.
Specifications: 7-1/2" length x 3-1/2" height x 4" width, up to 1000 RPM, die cast aluminum cylinders, brass arms and a sand cast aluminum platform and flywheel. Assembly required.
Bought this engine for my sons 8th birthday, and with a little help from dad we put it together easily. Runs great with the ESBIT fuel tablets and is a great kit for first time solar engine builders.
I´ve bought this engine for my kids and me. I´ve assembled in a little more than 30 minutes and run perfectly. Some burrs had to be removed on the plate base but not important. Excelent product.
